Welcome to Rwanda, a small African country settled simply just south of the equator. The country is commonly known as the “The Land of a Thousand Hills” and perplexes with its undulating tasty mountains and chain of seven volcanoes that intersperse Central Africa’s scene.
Although Rwanda is mainly known for mountain gorilla safaris in Volcanoes National Park, offering one of the most enthusiastic and entrancing wildlife encounters known to man, Rwanda safari packages offer substantially more to the courageous explorer from chimpanzee tracking to volcanic mountain climbing.
Taking a safari to Rwanda rewards you with some of the most stunning views in Africa, be it the dramatic Virunga mountain ranges bordering Uganda and DR Congo or the Nyungwe National Park which is the largest montane forests in East and Central Africa, with one of the highest concentration of primates such as Chimpanzees, Black and white colobus monkeys among others.
Volcanoes gorilla Park is spotted in northwest of the country and is a zone of thickly vegetated rain forest and bamboo giving asylum to imperiled brilliant monkeys and give or take one third of the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population. It is also where the American primologist; the late Dian Fossey spent close to 20 years protecting and habituating gorillas.
Deep in Nyungwe montane forest we find another lifetime adventure experience of tracking chimps and other primates. Chimpanzees here crash noisily through the jungle, and watching these distant relatives and their human-like behavior is another highlight of any safari in Rwanda. Apart from chimpanzee tracking, we also have black and which colobus monkey tracking, canopy walk, forest walks through different trails, bird watching, community visits and many others.
With the generally reported issues of 1994 genocide against the Titsi, Rwanda is a prosperous country and tourism is playing a very big role in its recovery. This is evidenced in the heart-warming reception you will receive from Rwandans.
